Smoked burgers

  1. Okay, so for those of you who read my first post about smoking ribs will know, that was my first attempt at smoking on my new master forge propane smoker and couldn't have been happier with the smoker itself and the results.

    After such a successful first go, I was preping up some burgers for the grill and decided why not throw them in the new smoker, so without a second thought, in they went. I set my smoker to around 225 with a mixture of 75% maple chips and 25% hickory chunks.

    As you can tell by the pictures, I like my burgers well done, any pink in the middle is just not appetizing for me, now on a steak that's a different story! I thought they turned out great and was pleased with the results yet again, and can't wait to get into something a little bigger like a butt or brisket, thanks for looking and happy smoking! :grilling_smilie:

    You could just make a bigger burger. I recommend the Stufz burger stuffer.

    I just did some last night. I like to use hard swiss as it doesn't leak out as much. If you mix your burger with an egg it helps seal it up better. I do juicy lucy's a few times a week.

    I make up a dozen or so stuffed patties and freeze them every couple of months. Then I just pull them out and place them on the smoker or grill till the inside hits 165°. I usually make a variety of stuffing's and make 4 of each flavor, some of our favorites are:

    Hawaiian - Ham, pineapple, mozzarella cheese, and olives

    Reuben - Pastrami, sauerkraut, and Swiss cheese

    Mushroom - saute's mushrooms and onions, monteray jack cheese

    I mark the top of each patty by placing a piece of the filling on top an lightly pressing it into the meat before freezing: pineapple for the Hawaiian, sauerkraut for the Reuben, and a piece of mushroom for the mushroom burgers. That way I can identify them later... lol.

    Bacon,mushrooms,onion and cheese. They seal up pretty good with the stuffer, I let the wife seal them so if they leak its her fault!
    I like the whole shot best.
